Steak Escape of Trace Fork initially opened their drive-thru window Sunday afternoon, but then opened the dining room as well due to customer demand. The restaurant received a conditional permit from the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department to reopen. The vast majority of area restaurants remain closed.
Darrell and Debbie Rolston, of Sissonville, made the trip to Trace Fork Sunday for cheesesteaks when they heard Steak Escape intended to open. The sandwich shop opened after being closed for several days following Thursday's chemical leak which contaminated the water supply of West Virginia American Water Company.
Customers place orders at Steak Escape in Trace Fork. It reopened Sunday and was heating bottled water in pots to wash hands and dishes.
